Happy Thanksgiving!

I have many things to be thankful for this year!

First and foremost, I am thankful for my faith. I am not sure how people make it in this world without faith, and I am glad that I'll never have to know.

I am thankful for a wonderful husband who loves me unconditionally.

I am thankful for my son, Peter, with his sweet disposition, who always has a hug for his Mama.


I am thankful for my son, Drew, who has such a love of life and always has a smile on his face.

I am thankful for my son, Michael, who at 4, tells me he loves me many times a day.

I am thankful for my baby, Alexandra, who fills me with such joy every time she snuggles with me.

I am thankful for my two babies in Heaven. I can't wait for us to meet again one day.

I am thankful to have been blessed with 33 and 35 years with my Mom and Dad. I am thankful that I can now say that instead of being jealous that others have more time with their parents.

I am thankful to be from a big Italian family, even when we are sometimes crazy!

I am thankful for my real life friends, who all know who they are, but especially thankful for Lisa, Sydney and Michelle who love and accept me as I am, faults and all.

I am also thankful for my blogging friends. Even though we have never met in person, I feel so blessed to know all of you, and thankful for what you have added to my life and my faith.

God bless you all, and may you have an abundant Thanksgiving!
